Dubner looks pretty good for a 64 year old!

In Dubner’s last post, he noted that Wikipedia sometimes gets it right and sometimes misses badly.

I just visited the entry on me in Wikipedia. What is amazing to me is that if you click on “history,” the page has been altered about 50 times in the last few months. Don’t people have anything better to do? The amount of detail in the entry is amazing, really.

Then I checked out Dubner’s page at Wikipedia. By the time you read this, someone will probably have changed it, but as I write, among his other illustrious accomplishments, he is listed as being one of the notable figures born in 1942. Unless he has been lying to me about his age, I believe that is about twenty years off from the truth.
